a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Sunday...

I had a surprise when I awakened.  A bouquet of wild flowers lay on my table by my favorite chair.  Hubby had been out for his healthy walk and thought about me.  Something about almost dieing makes you think of what's important, I guess.  I placed them in one of my favorites cups in the kitchen window.  We had daisies in our wedding bouquet, don't know if he remembered but it was nice to get a daisy and honeysuckles as a surprise.
None of my posts would be complete without a peek at Ki.  I think she is as big as she's gonna get now at seven months old.  She is hoping against hope, I will drop something from my plate.
I walked the creek today to refill my contentment level and be close to The Maker.  The waters  have not completely cleared.  We have deep holes where we had none...good for summer play and sand bars appeared in other places.  The power of water is amazing, it can reshape your world.
Hubby had worked on the road...Doc said he could drive Friday so he has been wearing out the tractor and the mule.  I don't think Doc meant, bounce around on rough equipment four days after  heart surgery.  Marcy and I went along on this ride to collect flat rocks for use in the yard.
Marcy, who is always outside by daylight, had picked a few wild strawberries before we picked rocks.  All in all, a pretty good morning...as the rain clouds move in again!

My dad did the same thing after his heart surgery. I did not know you could eat wild strawberries, now I do. :)

Love that your hubby picked you some flowers.

Not so sure about his bouncing around the farm "driving."

What a sweet guy to bring you flowers! And I'm wishing I had some of those strawberries....haven't had any Arkansas berries this year and the ones in the grocery just aren't as good. blessings, marlene

Wild strawberries??? I'm not familiar with the little berries but some wild strawberry shortcake sounds fun. :o)

We have a new puppy, Pepper. We've had her over a week. She is nine weeks old. I've taught her to sit, roll over and stand on command. She is smart 'cause I'm more of a kid whisperer than a dog whisperer. Now if I could teach her to stay out from under my feet so I could walk...she's a blue heeler and totally takes it seriously.

Take care and enjoy the sunshine sweetie! :o)

Awww...hubby is so thoughtful! What a pretty bouquet! I love natural wild flowers more than I like exotic prissy flowers. They suit my personality just fine.
